If you are looking to improve your Gopro Videos along with removing the Fisheye Distortion, then here is a fantastic solution. Peau Productions offers many different lens's that will do this. The one in my review is the 3.97mm and I am very happy I had this done.
Also with the Lens change you should consider their Filters. You will be amazed at how much they improve the quality of your videos. They are small, very light, made of glass and are of the highest quality.
Feel free to watch my review and 2 videos with the new lens.
Take Care, Grandpa Jake
The price for the 3.97mm f/2.8 82d HFOV 16MP for my GoPro Hero 3+ is $140 USD (marked down from $200 USD), which is roughly 70% of the purchase price of my Hero 3+, and seems a little pricey in relation to the original cost of my Hero 3+.
Why not buy another rougth camera with no fisheye distortion if you don't like fisheye?
In true DIY spirit it is nice to have options (although that exact 16MP is not as easily found)
Everyone has there opinion, some people spend on some things I would never consider. And true their are options, but I had wanted to try and make my videos better. Having that slight zoom of 1.5 allows me to keep my setting on Wide which is the best setting without degrading the gopro video. I guess after seeing some of the videos done with this lens and the Solo I thought it would be good to try it. Anyhow I guess it is each to his own, and this is just something I did :-) Grandpa Jake
Of course! I don't think Cala or anyone meant to suggest you shouldn't do this. It looks great. I, for one, have seen enough fisheye footage to last a lifetime. Cheers.
I did not take offence to it, only expressed my reasons :-) My other gopro is still stock and now I have choices.
I also don't have to explain to my friends that they are not seeing the curvature of the earth when they see my videos lol...... I guess it sort of does look that way, but not from 200 ft up lol
Of course, my is only a suggestion, here are lot's of preferences anyone is better than the other, the good thing is to have many choices for many preferences.
Sorry if I bad expressed, english (as it's obious) is not my native language and really bad :( but not try to offence anyone, only give my preference :)
And the videos looks nice, I prefer too non distortion horizons :)
